So I haven't been emo for a while now. I was wondering if any of you guys feel embarassed about being emo. Not to be rude, of course. The reason why I stopped is because of how I felt people felt about me. I'd be cool to know if people feel the same way and why you're still emo.

Haven't logged onto this site in a while so hmu if u want! :O

Not at all. It's what I am and I like the style. There's a lot you can do with it.

I’m not particularly embarrassed at all. The main thing is that I had to come to terms with accepting myself as a person, and loving the way I am.

^ nor do you? because you have never posted a picture before?
also it’s all in the eyes of the beholder, I dress differently everyday, so no one is particularly the same outfit as their profile picture.

"It's all in the eyes of the beholder" You're incorrect in this case... Maybe you look totally different irl, but believe me, no one will automatically assume you're emo when they see your profile pic. Trust me, I'm literally the emo king and I know emo when I see it.

They'll see an ordinary, trendy, hipster girl. You want every stranger to know you're emo right away, don't you? Man, this forum is a joke... About 90% of the people who still come here in this lame era are hipsters... If I used my real pic, I'd show you all how it's REALLY done...

You're not even old enough to remember when the emo look was mainstream! I have 0 respect for anyone who was born in the 21st Century 'cause all kids know is freakin' hipster garbage. What do you know about the emo style other than what you see on the internet? You were like, freakin' 6 years old when Justin Bieber came along and ruined the emo sidesweep...

Of course you ain't got nothin' to say! You ain't about the emo life, gtfoh. Who you foolin'?! You're not even putting up a fight 'cause you know I'm right. If you really think you're emo, which you clearly aren't, then this is nothing but a phase for you and you FAIL at it. Emo is dead. This forum should be renamed sohipster for this era.

^ I choose not to engage with talking to someone who clearly doesn’t even know how to hold up a proper conversation. You are literally fighting with someone who is younger than you, and pulling out all your defense mechanisms. kind of funny if you ask me.

Witch, please, you're not even trying to engage in a conversation because you know I got you. You're making excuses like 'You're too old to be arguing with me' to try to shut me down. That's YOUR defense mechanism. I'm not defending myself whatsoever, I'm just telling it like it is.

Why the hell would me being older than you make anything I say invalid? It doesn't, and your comebacks are weak. I'm simply pointing out that you're a fraud and you're not even trying to convince me otherwise.

Besides, you should know that emo is an old, short-lived, outdated fad that boomed with teens in the Mid - Late 00's. So of course most people on this website (whether they still come here or not) are in their 20's now. Your generation is the minority here, so you can't age-bash mine. Therefore, the pioneers of your subculture of interest have the right to test and criticize self-proclaimed emo people in younger generations.

What's funny here is that you claim to be emo when you're too young to know anything about it, and you don't even care enough about your own subculture to look the part. Just admit it, you're not emo. You're just a trendy girl with a bit of depression or whatever.

You can't claim to be something when you're not old enough to remember it. It's like a person who can't remember the Early 90's claiming to be 'Grunge'. When a trend becomes scarce, revivals are rarely 100% accurate. The people who get it right are usually those who were around and they're nostalgic for that particular era from whence the style came. Like I am with the 00's. When younger generations try to revive something, it's not the same. They ruin it with crappy modern trends and call themselves whatever they claim to be when they clearly aren't. Not to the pioneers at least.

Imagine a hipster kid who was born in 2006 is nostalgic for the hipster nerd style from the 2010's, but is all grown up and comes to a hipster forum in 2036, and nobody the looks the part because the mainstream style is something completely different at that point and almost everyone's moved on. Do you see where I'm coming from now? Do you understand my frustration?

I don't mean to be a prick, I just live in the past and I don't like change. I don't like the direction fashion's been going in this decade. I used to be a hipster myself before the look was mainstream, but the normies ruined it. Everyone looks so lame trying to be a hipster. Fashion in this decade is an abomination.

meaning you are a conservative if you don’t like change.. dude you literally spent so long writing that just to come out and say that you are just frustrated with the whole style in itself. why did you even feel the need to talk to me in the first place? just to vent in like 6 paragraphs about how much you hate the new fashion... lmao as we say in the early 2010’s then cool story bro. you dead ass sound so entitled to your own opinion that you are unwilling to open yourself up to change... like aight. live your life with ranting then.

Wow, are you dumb? Everything I say to you is misunderstood. I didn't mean "I don't like change" in a political way, but now that you mention it, I am indeed a conservative. I meant that I don't like change as far as fashion goes. (And yeah, I don't like progressive, liberal changes either, personally.)

"frustrated with the whole style in itself" [Facepalm] Nooo, you completely missed the point... I'm frustrated that the emo style (for the most part) is dead and few people dress legitimately emo these days, even on this forum.

The look is out of style and I'm the only one still copping it. That's what I'm frustrated about, you idiot. I talked to you in the first place just to point out that you don't look emo. That's it. You don't even sound emo. Nothing about you is emo and you don't care to prove me otherwise. And you look like my 63 year old aunt with that hairstyle. Btw, Hot Topic isn't emo anymore either.

"you are unwilling to open yourself up to change" As far as fashion goes, no, I'm not. I hate the new style in this decade. Everyone these days is either a hipster nerd, a Drake or Kardashian/Jenner wannabe or they have no style at all. Everyone's swag is lackin' in this decade, even the OGs. You wouldn't know what cool looks like 'cause you ain't been around long enough.

You were born in like, 2004, so you literally grew up in the lame ass hipster era. So you were about 7 when the emo fad started declining in popularity in 2011, and 8 when the fad was practically on life support. Your memory can't be sharp enough to remember what the in-crowd looked like from the Late 00's to 2011, so it's no wonder your idea of emo fashion is half-assed.

Matter of fact, emo music peaked on Pop stations around the time you were born. 2008 was the last year emo music was still fresh on Pop stations... The Jonas Brothers, Linkin Park and Avril Lavigne were among some of the last mainstream, stereotypically emo-sounding artists. The emo sound was on its last leg in 2009/2010 when you were in Kindergarten, assumably. The Indie/Hipster sound and Techno/Dubstep was reaching its peak at that point.

The bottom line is emo (and Goth, and Punk) is dead, but technically alive like a zombie, and you are not emo. You're a phony with a temporary interest and you know it. I don't know what your reasons are for being interested in this sub-culture, but you are not about the emo life. Think of it as joining a gang. You were put to the test and you failed. You have no pride, no dedication, no nostalgia, no hair in your face, nothing to be emo about... You don't even live up to your name. The W should be replaced with a B.

Your turn. ;)
